Surf & Turf

Mark Best

Western Australia’s vast size, around 33% of the mainland, extensive 10,000km+ coastline, varied landscapes and diverse climate zones, enable production of a broad range of products.

For this version I have chosen to pair the loin of a young fat lamb with a giant blue yabby indigenous to the South West called marron, some coastal sea blight, and a bit of South Indian influenced French curry. Whilst not technically “surf” (marron is a fresh water crustacean) – some wag coined the name “Smurf & Turf” which seemed apt enough to be worthy of stealing.
